Subject: A NORML bus ?
After listening to 2 or 3 other recordings of this show, this one is not bad. Our NORML
chapter at a small college in northwestern Pa.
rented a school bus and about 30 of us made the trip.
Compared with the other shows in this run, this
show is kind of unique, especially the 2nd set.
Jerry was running around on stage during the drums playing a cowbell and some other odd
percussives.All in all, a good tine was had by all.

Subject: I threw these discs out
Indeed, this is a very interesting show, however the sound is horrible. It's like that Star Trek with the salt sucker monster; all of the salt has ben sucked out of this beastie. The power and beauty of the music wants to come out, i.e. you can tell this was a great show, but it is as if the show was recorded inside of a plastic bag. I couldn't even finish the show. Too depressing. I threw the discs out.

Maybe try the taper version. It has a lot of clapping and stuff, but to my ears it sounds way better.

Finally a decent copy of this vastly underrated show, and an excellent job of patching this together. A very lively show, the Scarlet>Dancin'>18 minute drums>Samson segment is reason enough to get this. This show can fit on discs if US Blues follows set 1.

Subject: Scarlet
The sound here is a little muddy for a SBD, more like an AUD (it matters far less during the jam, where its instruments only). The Scarlet begins with that quick pace reminiscent of 2-5, and Garcia takes an extra turn before the "willows" verse. Donna does some extended scatting at the top of the jam. Lots of intricate noodling follows. The drums make a suggestion at the eleven minute mark, followed by another line or two from Donna. There's only the vaguest of hints that this might head to Fire (several notes from Keith in the background). Instead, it dissolves to drums and launches into Dancin. It would be another six years and 109 Scarlets before they would again segue into something other than Fire....
